Default Why not use Cushing as our "Short-yardage" Back ?

Cushings interception Sunday, his third of the year, was impressvie but not
as impressive to me as what he did after he got the ball: he moved it over to the correct arm while running down-field towards the GL and he used a straight-arm to ward off a Colt. All in the same play. How often have you seen one of our full-time running backs do those 2 things in the same play ?
So this is a LB who has some real ball-skills and if I'm not mistaken he learned them playing both running back and WR (among other positions), back in NJ in HS ?
So we've got us a very hard-nosed 260-pounder with some quicks who also has descent ball skills including good hands. And they say Cushing is a "throwback" ? Well then that sounds like 2-way to me, atleast 2-way to the extent of a part-time running back in short yardage and full-time LB ? Finally it would free up roster spot, because why would we need Chris Brown ?

Seems like our best short yardage guy is AJ. He always gets the extra yard

Not so sure about using Cushing as a RB. But then I feel the same way about Chris Brown. LOL

I LOVE that formaion. Don't know why it doesn't see more use. We could run it with Casey and Leech, and add a threat out of the backfield.

chris is Kubes boy

I still like Slaton and Moats tho


Cush is a rookie making him a RB is not a good idea


i wouldnt mind seeing Casey and barwin in the offesnsive tho casy might be able to throw the ball around

We need our version of wildcat called wildbull we got the Players JJ has well

We have a pretty big, fast guy with ball skills already on offense. James Casey

Default Re: Why not use Cushing as our "Short-yardage" Back ?

Kind of a funny thread. Besides the obvious fact that Cushing is already used alot durring the games, I dont see how he would give us a better chance to win.

Would you really want him taking hits from a defense? A helmet to the knee and he is done.

Lets move on.

Haha I LOVE how after losses we always have a "shouldn't we use (random Texans player) in (random role)" every week

Next week it'll be why not use David Anderson as a short-yardage back... line him up at fullback, hand off and have him squirt under all the lineman.. sort of like the hidden ball trick in baseball

I have come hate losing just as much for the posters/fans reactions as anything. Some of the passing thoughts about moving this player here or there just need to be kept to one's self.
